The Dallas Cowboys beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 16-10. However, the score could have been one less touchdown for the Bucs as their offense could not get anything going.

Tampa Bay started off quick when Aqib Talib stepped in front of Cowboys’ wide receiver Miles Austin to intercept the pass from Tony Romo. Josh Freeman would go on to throw a one yard touchdown pass to tight end Luke Stocker in the corner of the end zone to jump out in front 7-0.

Later in the first quarter, Dallas would get an interception when a pass from Josh Freeman to running back DJ Ware bounced off his facemask and into the arms of Cowboys’ linebacker Sean Lee. Four plays later, running back DeMarco Murray would take it in from 11 yards out and tie the Bucs at seven.

Neither offense would get much more going as both defenses would force several stops. The difference would be three field goals by Dallas kicker Dan Bailey as the Cowboys were at least able to play into Bucs’ territory.

Both Michael Bennett and Gerald McCoy contributed in big ways to the defense. Each had two sacks on Tony Romo. The defensive front also pressured Romo into several bad throws throughout the game as well as fumble the ball.

Quarterback Josh Freeman had some bad throws of his own. On a third and 20 in Cowboys’ territory, Vincent Jackson found a hole in the Dallas secondary to which he threw behind Jackson to miss a third down conversion. The ground game went nowhere as Doug Martin rushed 19 times for 53 yards. LeGarrette Blount saw his first action since the second quarter of week one and rushed for 19 yards on four carries. Blount also leaped over a Cowboys defender using his signature hurdle.

The Bucs do have some concern on the injury front. On one of Gerald McCoy’s sacks, defensive end Adrian Clayborn would get his leg caught between Tony Romo falling back and a Cowboys’ offensive lineman. Early indications point to Clayborn missing the rest of the season but the team will perform an MRI on Monday and try to provide more information on his injury.

The Bucs will play hosts to Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins next Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.
